I just realized how badly I want a Minipla GaoKing and GaoMuscle.

My Kishiryu Oh 3 Knights arrived today, and while I have a few nitpicks, like hollow parts where there didn't need to be (I'm looking at you Tyramigo tail) It looks phenomenal. I've compared it to some vids of the DX, and the proportions are so much nicer. Especially the way the hip parts of the legs have two connector ports to shift them slightly down, so he can have that leaner look from the show.

I haven't seen anyone else talking about it though, so I wonder if anyone knows, there is a piece in box 2 which doesn't seem to go anywhere. You can see it in this pic.



I'm just wondering, if anyone has 5 Knights, if it plays some role in that formation.

I think it's a spacer so Tyramigo's head can have more articulation in dino mode.

So I finally received Jet Icarus. Never going EMS again. I hate Parcelforce.

Few things with this toy. It reminded me that I suck at building things, my hands are much bigger than Japanese toy reviewers and it's not always as simple as they make it look. It took me hours but finally finished and I love it. I'm super happy to finally own this mecha. Now I'm just waiting for Jet Garuda to arrive and I can do it all again....

Thinking of what to get next. I'm tempted by either Gaogaigar or Gridman sets.

I got my Astro megazord in store for 20% off(coupon is supposed to be online only)





I explained to an employee that ordering online can potentially give you the wrong one. I told them I didnít want to get the wrong one then go through returning the wrong one

See the review comments


Employee said -tell you what. Iíll take 20% off at the front counter



EDIT: It's done!



I never got Delta Megazord back in 97. I only had Astro Megazord. Now I have both!

So, the long gray peg that becomes the ankle for Jet Swan broke...

Since this wasn't through Bluefin (obv) is there a way to get a replacement via Tamashii/online?

Or, alternatively, is Jet Swan sold separately anywhere or way?

I loved building this set so much, and I can't put it down. It's so much fun to play with.

Nice to know but donít need this

https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/...Shogun&lang=en

Mandrake has kumard (yellow shogun zord) for sale

I donít see many places sell individual muteki shogun parts.

I would gladly buy individual pieces for replacement stickers or parts

Is there anywhere I could find the Daizyujin/MMPR Megazord for a decent price? It's going for crazy amounts on Ebay and I really don't feel like paying Soul of Chogokin prices for him

I guess the lesson here is to buy things I want right around release, but at the time I was a broke college student and couldn't really afford it. Such is life. I'll keep an eye out for future releases, I really want Ohranger Robo and GaoMuscle at some point.

Edit: Iím also very torn as to which one I should buy next: Jet Icarus or Muteki Shogun. I already have Kakure Daishogun so part of me wants to just complete the Kakuranger set, but Iíve heard bad things about the Shogun and Jet Icarus looks amazing.

I'm biased as I don't own Shogun, but Jet Icarus is a fantastic build. Only horrible bit for me to build was the leg connectors on Hawk because there's a hexagonal peg and round holes. Took me a lot of blood, sweat and tears to connect the parts. It looks great when finished, though. Very solid and it's satisfying to have 3 forms and quite a few weapons.

Also Jet Garuda got delivered to my house yesterday, but I went to my GF's after work so I can't get it until I finish today. I may just bring it into work tomorrow to build as it's quiet here and there's more space/light in my department.

I'd pick up the older release, just in case the price goes up too far by the time you get to it lol. I'd help you out with the MMPR Megazord, but not so funny story, I owned multiple sets of the kit and someone stole the boxes


Also, thanks for the heads up on the Jet Swan ( you know who you are!). I got it and should have it soon. Yusssss.

How does EMS tracking work? I ordered my Jet Icarus via EMS and the tracking number they provided with my order doesn't seem to be working.

Are you in the USA? Then just regular USPS tracking will work. You can look up EMS tracking sites too... maybe the number was entered wrong from the seller?

Iím in Joplin, MO and all my EMS packages are here in 3 days, usually and DHL are 2 days.

I'm in central Wisconsin, so the shipping times are probably not too different. I'm just not sure where it's shipping from and when the package will begin moving. The status says "shipped," but the order date shows up as July 20th, which is obviously tomorrow (I placed the order yesterday, Thursday).

Finally got the replacement parts for Jet Icarus.

So I decided to have it combine with the Jet Garuda I got sometime earlier to form Great Icarus.

I have to say in spite of the design not allowing for the most stable of dynamic stances,I love the way this guy looks.
